Inter-school Competitive Sport
The two inter-school sports for the first semester will be football (soccer) and swimming. Students in Grade 2-5 will have the opportunity to represent IST in regular swim galas with other schools from around Dar es Salaam as well as the Tanzanian Schools’ gala that will be hosted at IST in May. Please see details below about the after school swimming placements. Football is probably the most popular sport at IST with boys and girls signing up in large numbers. During the first semester teams from Grade 3, 4 and 5 represent IST in local leagues and football will also be included in the Tanzania Schools’ tournament in May.
